They get what they deserve. They should sit for the next four months and think about what they did to us.
2007/2008 Mets off season thread.
For some bizzare reason, the Mets thread is closed already. So vent here.
Fire that fucking knitter skankee Randolph.
What a disgusting end to a promising season. There needs to be some house cleaning this off season especially with the bull pen.
that had to hurt
yea its randolphs fault
It's Opie's fault...
All I have to say is BWHAHAHAHAHAAHAHAHAHAHAHA.....
Best day ever
The more I think about it, todays game was a massive exclamation point on the past month. What a blown season. I need a drink.
Tough luck fellas, this is not me gloating. Good season, but you oughta castrate Lastings Milledge and Jose Reyes for dancing like fools and waking up the Marlins yesterday.
billy wagner in NY POST We’ve been throwing four innings a night – for months!” Wagner told the magazine. “Our pitching coach has no experience talking to a bullpen. He can help you mechanically, but he can’t tell you emotions. He has no idea what it feels like. And neither does Willie. They’re not a lot of help, put it that way.”
Its really quite simple. It was the 2007 Season thread and the seasons over. So thread over.
Mama Cass actually didn't choke...click here and find out....only the Mets did.
I got tired of hearing it from Met fans back in '04.
7 game lead with 17 to play...that's never been done before.
Question for Met fans...what's worse: Seeing Carlos watch strike 3 with his bat sitting clamly on his shoulder last year or this recent collapse?
wow. you can tell wagner has a temper. but thats a brutal statement. not that I disagree. its just rare a player goes all out against his coaches like that
It's funny. All season while the Yankees were struggling and trying to catch up in the playoff race, whenever I went to my parent's house and put on the Yankees game, my dad would taunt me by saying, "You can't watch that game here. We only watch teams that are going to the playoffs in this house."
Here is what happened:
Actually the same thing happened to the Phillies back in the 60's. They led the division by 6 and a half games by early September only to blow the division by seasons end. So its happened before. Sorta.(Not sure of the dates but it has happened before)
Never before in sports history has a team blown a 3-0 lead in the playoffs, at least until the Yankees did it in 2004. So that little piece of history will remain intact, even after the awful collapse of the 2007 Mets in regular season.
In a wierd way I'm glad they didn't make the playoffs. The way they played the last few weeks at least I won't have to see them get embarrased in the playoffs. By mid August they looked like they deserved a playoff shot. Holding on the lead for most of the season. In September they did not. Alot of the teams already in do deserve it, even the Phillies. Coming back like that to threaten both the NL East lead and the Wild Card spot(Same thing the Yanks did over in the AL!)
So my congrats to all those teams!
I want to yell at Glavine for what happened today but it's not totally his fault. It should have never come to this. This should have been a throwaway game. Much like the Yanks/Orioles game tonight. Really doesn't matter to either side. In fact this past week should have been throwaway games because the Mets should have had already clinched. So instead they still remained throwaway games...too bad it was the season that got thrown away...
My prediction for this year's series:
Angels vs. Cubs(pick 'em!)
Never liked Willie, even more when he tried to bring that "Yankee mentality" to the Mets a few years ago. With that said, Willie needs to go, he alone cost the Mets at least 5-8 wins this year. You think that would have a made a difference? His constant "I trust my gut" or "i got to stay true to the guys that got me here" its so fucking gay. The Mets need a coach that understands the NL rules, that can actually pull a successful double switch.
Because he was reluctant to try something different and try so hard to be like his mentor, the Mets blew it. Doesn't he realize that burning your pitching staff in May-June will come back to bite you in the ass? How many times do you bring in Mota before you realize the guys sucks?
Finally, for someone who is know as a players coach, he really isn't. He lost his team months ago and wasn't able to get through to his players when it matter most. His methods sucks and he should be fired!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Wagner blows his arm out every year, the Mets overused him as he's lights out at the beginning of a season. We had him here, we know. I dont understand them putting him in that much at the end. Then again he's a whiney pussy so glad Pat cranked out 2 off him.
Yes it did:
